If you don't have air conditioning make sure you have somewhere to go during the hot part of the day. You can head over to Westgate Mall to get out of the heat. Or grab an early dinner somewhere.

This should be a no brainer but never leave your kids or pets alone in a car. It takes no time for the temperatures to raise to dangerous levels. If they are outside make sure they have plenty of water.
